I’ve started on a patch, but the check should fail if bios_crtc_base is unset

Yes. The rumprun kernel built on Linux boots fine (including serial output by 
on Linux. The one built on FreeBSD triple faults, due to accessing 0x2.

I’m using GNU Binutils from devel/binutils:

pkg list binutils | grep /usr/local/bin/ld

$(x86_64-rumprun-netbsd-gcc -print-prog-name=ld) -v
GNU ld (GNU Binutils) 2.30
